Recover....I am so happy!!!

My poor girl, she has been bitten by high fever since early Saturday morning.
Her rising temperature made us jumped to our feet and rushed to the clinic at 2 a.m in the morning. We gave her a dose of fever medication and made our way to the ER. On the way to the ER Ava vomited and not before long I can see her dinner and the medication served  on our shirts ..She had her own spare of cloth but mummy ends up being shirtless... so half way to the ER I have to be "shirtless" lucky it was 2 am in the morning, otherwise I could  cause serious traffic mishaps. To remedy the situation I wrap Ava's ringsling around me like a tube and put on my nursing poncho.
A prescription of antibiotic made Ava vomiting all over again(and she refused to take any medication) and it left us no choice to nurse her without any medical prescription. 
Checking at her temperature every half an hour, wiped her body every hours and kept on giving water to drink(every time need to make sure  her diapers were flooded with her pees, if it's flooded then its a good sign that her temperature was going down.)
Her temperature kept on going up and down !!! but still in the fever zone, which made us quiet concerned.
The routine had been going on for 3 days and 2 nights.( You can imagine how hubby and I were dealing with this.)
 Finally by yesterday, her fever became mild and so far until today her temperature is back to normal again. During this period, Ava refused to sleep in the sarong or on the bed and instead she sleeps in her Link A Do. Luckily we have not stored away her Link A Do cos after she start walking she don't really like to sit in the rocking chair.
